Ever since I saw Rati’s post on these hand creams, I fell for them, then my sister brought me some Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams and shower gels, there was looking back. I went to their store in Chennai and picked up some hand creams, I absolutely love their vintage and classic look and they work perfectly for me, they come in a various fragrances and varieties. Take a look at some best ones in India:
“A heart of uniquely scented Evelyn Rose petals and peach nectar, surrounded by an elegant jasmine violet accord with accents of bergamot and sensuous amber.” Crabtree & Evelyn “Evelyn Rose” Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy would make a great summer hand cream for anybody. If you have normal skin, then you are lucky to use this throughout the year.
“Exquisitely scented orris from the root of the iris flower, blended with precious sandalwood, sensuous patchouli and a hint of fresh vetiver.” Rati says ” I have slightly dry hands so I have to use hand creams quite often during the day. However, I always prefer that I don’t have to re-apply a hand cream for many hours at stretch. This hand cream, I absolutely love.”
“The La Source line of therapies for the body, hands, and feet are blended with restorative mineral salts and nutrient-rich seaweeds, plentiful along the coasts of England, Scotland, and Wales. Our La Source products have a crisp scent reminiscent of fresh sea air.” Ida says” It has a lovely, lightweight, really easy-to-spread consistency. It doesn’t feel sticky on the skin at all, or even remotely greasy or oily. It leaves my hands smoother and more moisturized. Great for daily use, and especially when it’s very humid and I can’t stand anything sticky.”
“A blend of briar roses, bergamot, fresh greens, amber and vanilla.” It smells exactly like Ponds dreamflower talc and I quite like the sweet floral smell this has for my hands to smell fresh after a day’s work in the kitchen.The smell lasts at least an hour or two on me, provided I don’t wash or work much.
“Specially formulated with natural shea butter to soothe and help protect hands.” People like me who have super dry skin will not be absolutely satisfied with the moisture that this cream provides, but this is a good cream for day time usage and also for summers.
“Contains hydrating ceramides and antioxidant-rich vitamin E,Myrrh extract helps condition nails and cuticles,Formulated without colour, lauryl sulfates, mineral oil, parabens or propylene glycol” he cream is light, and is fresh herbals and garden like, just what i expected after reading “basil” and “olive” on the pack.Now what I find with this one is that it is lighter and more moisturizing than the nantucket one, as in this one has more water content I feel and takes a little longer to settle, keeping a subtle watery film on the hand.
” After a long day of handling thorny situations, our gardeners hand therapy is just the help you need. Nutrient-rich shea butter helps nourish and condition work-roughened hands.” Rati says ” After a long day of handling thorny situations, our gardeners hand therapy is just the help you need. Nutrient-rich shea butter helps nourish and condition work-roughened hands.It has a mid-strong lavenderish fragrance, which I like. The consistency is a light semi thick lotion. It gets absorbed quickly without leaving any residue behind. It is not greasy . Love the simple and non fussy packaging.”
I am lusting to go to their store soon, they have some awesome bath products and talc as well apart from the hand creams.
